You recall in the early seventies Russia pleaded with Nixon for a US company to come show them how to build trucks. They specifically asked for Ford.
Well, Nixon turned them down so they got Fiat to come instead. I will always believe that is what caused their downfall fifteen years later.
In my circles Fiat is an acronym for "Fix It Again, Tony". And they're buying Chrysler?
This is what happens when you get ivy league eggheads running things.
Does anybody recall, around 1994, Michael Moore challenging the Big 3 automaker CEO's to change his oil?
Ford's then CEO Alex Trotman donned coveralls and did it.
We need leaders who can change a sparkplug.
The chances are that should an advanced country come into the keeping of the intellectual it would begin to show many of the hectic traits which seem to us characteristic of a backward country in the throes of awakening. eric hoffer
